7:00 PM - 8:00 PM BOE Budget Work Session
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM BOE Meeting
DISTRICT STATEMENT REGARDING A HOCKEY TEAM NAMED CHEEKTOWAGA WARRIORS The Cheektowaga Central School District would like to clarify statements and reports that have been recently communicated in the media that are related to the conduct of a hockey team named the Cheektowaga Warriors. The hockey team referenced in the media is a MOHL (Multi-Organizational House League) town team that is completely unrelated to our school district. Many sports teams that are based out of the Town of Cheektowaga are also named the Cheektowaga Warriors. The players on these teams can come from any area in WNY, not just the town of Cheektowaga. School district personnel did investigate the situation by cross referencing the MOHL team roster and our student management system. There are no Cheektowaga Central students on this particular MOHL team. The Cheektowaga Central Schools take great pride in our diversity and community relationships. We have always worked to help our students and other outside entities understand that racial slurs, gestures, and remarks are hurtful and unacceptable in any environment. We hope everyone involved in this incident takes this as an opportunity to reflect and do better.
